  1. To be fair on TV abroad Arsenal are Spurs always have a London added to thier name
  2. Yeah I went and bought one of the retro leeds shirts which look good on the rack. But as soon as you put it on you realise how bad oxen are. Material is the worse than market tat. And the cut is just really poor collar too small and sleeves are massive.
  3. Players are also renowned for their heavy drinking, abusing prescription pain medication and Street brawls. Would this not be brought up in a court case Bobbie Goulding for instance has admitted he abused alcohol, cocaine and prescription drugs. He even lost consciousness when he wrapped his car round a tree while drink driving. He has also been in trouble for street fighting. How someone like Bobbie Goulding could link his unfortunate dementia to RL is laughable.
  4. Bobbing Goulding's interview was a car crash. He was complaining about not seeing a doctor even he had just been discharged by Huddersfield Infirmary. Surely its up to the doctor to issue a sick note. As far as the club was concerned he was signed off fit by a doctor. He then admitted he said he was ok to play after being asked by the club. Sorry but if you do not tell your employers your symptoms then how can they be held responsible they are not mind readers.
  5. Yeah our media and pundits are often our worst enemy. When the SL teams were regularly winning the WCC it was because the NRL clubs were treating it as a joke not even as important as a preseason game. Once the NRL were back winning it was because the SL was just rubbish compared to the NRL. So rubbish infact that every time we had to discuss if the game was even worth playing anymore.
  6. Oh I love these posts about how lowly the opinion is Australians hold about SL. Who bloody cares. In soccer I have never watched a La liga match, couldn't tell you who's top of the league same with Serie A, Bundesliga etc.. but I'm still interested in Champions League because international club games are interesting. In RL we have 4 countries who have professional clubs its not beyond the realms of possibility to generate interest in international club games without making every Australian RL fan get up at 2 am to watch SL.
  7. I agree if you want NFL you just go to the London games. Going to a small soccer/rugby stadium with small crowds and rubbish amenities to watch semi pro American football is not why people follow NFL.
  8. I don't think so, alot of soccer pundits and fans bemoan the amount of Burnley v Watford type games the PL has.
  9. Not that many sports have promotion and relegation. Mostly its just soccer.
  10. I've been hoping for the day Toulouse gets in SL for years. Thankfully it has happened, even though it should of happened last year at least. I really find it amazing how we could be messing around with the idea of the likes of Leigh and potentially Featherstone in SL when we are fighting for our lives and trying to prove to sky we are an elite competition.
  11. Could the Catalans v Toulouse derby be the one to finally replace the Leeds v Bradford crowds
  12. I'm extremely happy we have Tolouse in SL but in reality it should of happened last year if not 2/3 years ago. It makes the competition look and feel much more elite with another big city club, who are a proper historic rugby league club not just a team plopped in Toronto. To think we could have ended up with Featherstone in SL when we are trying to prove to SKY that we are a top product.
  13. Guess what guys nobody in the UK watches the Belgian First Division must mean its doomed to fold within the decade.
  14. Such a weird mentality we have in RL No body watches the EFL championship play-offs and say well its not the quality of the Champions league what an embarrassement.
  15. I don't buy this argument. Everyone loves winning. I don't think suddenly losing will bring the fans back. The All Blacks have won 80% of their matches in their 100+ year history.
  16. I'd wager if it doesn't go ahead. That will be time for the RLWC for a long time.
  17. Would you trust Aus to take part in 2022. I wouldn't.
  18. The RFL and IRFL have no backbone so it is likely to be postponed. But in my opinion. You can easily make up two Australian and NZ invitational teams from players over here and players willing to break ranks.
  19. Unfortunately we now have to act as if Australia and NZ no longer exist in the international game. It will be difficult but it must be done. We can no longer depend on them to act as a friendly partner.
  20. He will be back in SL sometime next season IMO he is a shadow of his former self after his injury. Would go OK in a Salford or Wakefield type club.
